Event Photo

When we met Colleen from Aubert & Mascoli at one of our suppers, we immediately realised a great friendship was about to start. This friendship developed in the organisation of this food/wine matching event, hopefully one of many more. The guys at Aubert & Mascoli offer an outstanding range of niche French and Italian wines from top small winemakers with a stress on courageous styles of vinification, unusual grapes growning, organic and biodynamic. A few unique bottles with a story behind each label.

For this first themed night, chef chose three wines from the great wine regions of Italy: Piedmont, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia and Tuscany. We will move from the North-West of Italy with a slighlty sparkling, appley organic white made from local grape varieties to the far North-East to find the most unusual Pinot Gris: full bodied, fruity, rich, intense, a winner. Our journey will end up in Tuscany and it will be not for a Sangiovese but, hold yourself to your seats, for a Pinot Noir: a splendid, velvety, spicy Tuscan newcomer.

The event will include a wine tasting session lead by the Aubert&Mascoli; staff, three region inspired main courses and a dessert and a few top ups of the wine you tasted which are offered by the BackDoor.
